Charged with designing a branch that would harmonize with local architecture, JRS delivered a shingle-style building reflecting the early 20th century summer homes famous in the region. This project was bestowed with an Archi award for Excellence in Architecture by the Long Island AIA.
JRS used Green Globes building practices for COB’s new prototype branch. Exterior panels of recycled metals and natural stone are durable and maintenance free. Interior elements include low-flow plumbing, programmable HVAC, and wall coverings, flooring, and a metallic ceiling of recycled content. Partial 2-story design creates a sense of space greater than the small footprint would normally allow.
